Flynn hurls two-hit shutout vs. Easton

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Junior Alex Flynn threw a complete game, two-hit shutout, striking out six and walking none to help Parkland (15-2 overall, 10-1 LVC) win its sixth straight game, and seventh straight conference game since a 1-0 setback at Coca Cola Park to Whitehall on April 13.

The Trojans used the arm of Flynn to grin and bear a 4-0 win at Easton last Friday afternoon.

The offense had just six hits, but four runs were plenty with the way Flynn pitched.

"I definitely used my curveball...

Former Trojan QB gets chance to play in NFL

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

John Laub watched the final day of the NFL Draft surrounded by family members for over eight hours, waiting for that one phone call that would change his life.

While being in constant communication with his agent at Pro Star Sports Agency, that call came about 30-45 minutes after the draft's conclusion. The Detroit Lions were interested in bringing in Laub, a former Richmond Spider quarterback, for their three-day rookie minicamp and giving him a chance to compete for a roster spot....

Softball comes back to beat Nazareth, 5-2

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

It wasn't their most well-rounded offensive showing of the season, but every time Nazareth went ahead, the Parkland softball team had an answer at the plate.

After falling behind 2-1 in the fifth when Nazareth chalked up a run in the top half of the inning, the Trojan bats came alive in the bottom of the frame and broke a stretch of four hitless innings. The first six Trojans reached base in the fifth, and Parkland (14-5 overall; 9-4 in LVC) tallied four runs to take a 5-2 lead, a...

Doubles team wins D-11 crown

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 by CJ HEMERLY Special to the Press in HS Sports

Egor Ivanov had experienced the big stage of a district final before. The senior has played in the Class AAA District 11 doubles championship game each of the last three years, winning once in 2012. His partner the last two years, Richie Lichtenwalner, has since graduated, and Ivanov now plays the leadership role guiding a freshman Nick Kshatri into the tournament.

"Nick is only a freshman, so obviously he's not as experienced as Richie was," Ivanov said. "I think he held together...

Parkland girls beat Freedom

Wednesday, May 1, 2013 by TYLER TRUMBAUER Special to the Press in HS Sports

Jess Leiby scoops up the loose ball. She twirls her stick to secure the prized possession and begins streaking down the field.

En route she weaves through defenders with just one thing on her mind, scoring a goal. As she approaches her destination she plants her feet and fires a shot past the goalie as she sees her hard work come to fruition.

The senior midfielder repeated that process three more times as she netted four goals in the Lady Trojans' lacrosse team's defeat of...

Trojans rally, fall short to EHS boys lax

Wednesday, May 1, 2013 by TODD KRESS Special to the Press in HS Sports

After falling in a 3-0 hole through the first period of last week's game against Emmaus, the Parkland boys lacrosse team responded with five consecutive goals to lead by two with under eight minutes to play.

Momentum had shifted in the Trojans' favor, and it looked as if they were on their way to avenging a loss to the Hornets earlier in the season.

But what happened next was from a script one couldn't have even imagined.

Marc Feldman scored two Hornet goals in the final...

Wednesday, May 1, 2013 by PETER CAR in HS Sports

Where there's smoke, there's fire, and the news of a Lehigh Valley super-conference finally came to fruition last week.

All of the current LVC members, except for Bethlehem Catholic...
